Cotswolds Distillery launches its second Amaro Liqueur

Press Release..

The Cotswolds Distillery is delighted to launch its second Amaro Whisky Liqueur expression: Cotswolds No 2 Whisky Amaro.

Following on from the successful launch of Cotswolds No 1 at the beginning of the year, Cotswolds No 2 Whisky Amaro will make an excellent addition to the home bar and is the perfect after dinner digestif, best served well-chilled on the rocks and ideal for Christmas celebrations.


The base for Cotswolds No 2 is Cotswolds Peated Cask Single Malt whisky. A selection of botanicals including chamomile, citrus and herbs are added, resulting in a complex, herbaceous liqueur with notes of spice and a slightly bitter finish.

Cotswolds Peated Cask Single Malt Whisky was awarded ‘Best World Whisky’ at the International Whisky Competition 2020.  As the spirit is matured in ex-peated quarter 

casks the resulting whisky is wonderfully balanced, rich and fruity with subtle notes of peat smoke.

As a comparison, Cotswolds No 1 Whisky Amaro has the flagship Cotswolds Single Malt Whisky as the base with a blend of selected botanicals including vanilla, citrus and spice have been added to create a lighter Amaro liqueur with pronounced herbal and floral notes.

Tasting Notes:


Nose: Treacle tart, lapsang souchong tea, full of rich, smoky and sweet aromas.


Palate: Light smoke with sweet burnt caramel and bittersweet herbal notes


Finish: Smoke fades with a touch of caramelised peaches and long bittersweet finish.
